Two Pictures, 45 Years Apart, Says It All

As a child, I watched the Civil Rights struggle from afar. As an adult, I see the same thing.

Look at these two pictures:

August 28, 1963, Washington Mall Civil Rights March/Rally est. 200,000 people

St. Louis, Missouri Obama Rally, October 18, 2008

The difference?

Now black, white, male, female, Native, Asian, Christian and not seek relief from oppression. The oppression has changed somewhat, but the sentiment against all oppression is still the same.

The Constitution is still for us all; straight or not, regardless of color, age, creed, religion, ethnicity, disability or other factors. We are all equal under the Constitution.

America is not small towns, or big towns, it is everyone.

Believe it. Live it. Vote it.
